Breckenridge snow reportAnother day, another foot, or two, and I don't think it is over yet.  Actually, looking outside I can confirm it is not near letting up.   Looks like the mountain will be full tomorrow, of snow, not people.  Currently the base depth mid mountain in Breck is 63 inches, I expect that to top 75 tomorrow, and it will be dumping all this week. To date, we have accumulated 236 inches of snow in breck, 255 by tomorrow, which is way ahead of average, and most other ski areas! This picture is what my driveway looked like at 7:30 tonight when I got home, I hate to shovel, but love to slide around on this stuff!
